My husband and I have stayed at Casa Kato three times (since 2012) and will stay again in future. Located in a quiet area, it gives a real sense of a home away from home, rather than simply a holiday let. The description and photos don’t do it justice. The villa is spacious and well-designed, with superb views out to the sea. That first morning coffee out on the terrace, admiring the view, is unbeatable. The villa is immaculate and the owners have ensured that it is well-maintained and fully equipped for a self-catering family stay, right down to beach towels and a hair dryer. The electrically-heated pool (maintained at 28 degrees) and hot tub are lovely at any time of year. The design of the large terrace takes full advantage of the infinity view, lending to a sense of space. There are various areas outdoors for seating/lounging, both in the sun and shade, so there is ample room for everyone. The villa has Wi-Fi and the sat. TV has numerous English-language channels that include news, TV series and movies. There is a large film collection available if nothing on TV appeals. Although we didn’t use it, there is a second monitor and PlayStation/dvd player in one of the twin bedrooms, allowing kids to have their own entertainment space.
Booking is very easy and owner Rob is both quick to respond and very helpful. Directions on how to get to the villa are easy to follow but a car is necessary. There is a very helpful property manager locally should you need assistance. Playa Blanca is a pleasant, low-key coastal resort, with plenty of restaurants, shops, and supermarkets. There is a small Spar and a full-sized Hiperdino supermarket about a five minute drive from the villa, near the ferry dock/bus station area.
A car is recommended to make the most of your stay on the island. (We always use AutoReisen.) The volcanic craters and lava fields are striking, particularly once you leave the resort areas behind and travel inland. A visit to nearby Timanfaya National Park is a must. We highly recommend this villa as a home base for exploring the island, and will return in the future.
